I couldn’t find anything within the last year on this. Does anyone know if a card was ever made to work with Garmin units? Thanks

I believe Garmin takes GPX ( I might be worng) and you can convert them from bird. Go on the BBC garmin board to confirm

GPS Babel is your friend. I converted them to Amy RayMarine from the Lowrance I had before. Garmin conversion should be effective as well.

Garmin unit software supports GPX, but does not support GPX track-segmentation.

So Boatlanes is not supported or displayed correctly on Garmin units. GpsLakeMaps is also not supported.

I would recommend you contact Garmin about fully supporting GPX. Garmin has know of this issue since Garmin units came out.

I have them on all 3 of my garmin units. Just convert the Lowrance files to gpx.

Well I hope all the Garmin users who are reading this thread call Garmin Support about fixing GPX.

Shows up as waypoints and my track saves as I drive.

My LOP chip uploaded as waypoints and tracks.

Unless Garmin has updated their unit software Boatlane's tracks will not display properly.
For example, Lake o' the Pines will display something like this Google Earth image. Notice how the track-end-points are incorrectly connected:



Lake o' the Pines should display like this:

The LOP chip is awesome. It shows the river from 259 to the dam.
